Pork Neck Bone with Corn Soup


In the Caring Place Community Kitchen, Joanna shared some very homey Chinese dishes.

Pork-Neck-Bone-and-Corn-Soup-6

The first recipe is a simple Pork Neck Bone with Corn Soup. You may use pork rib to make this soup for a meatier cut of meat. Pork neck bone is very cheap, 99 cents per pound.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds pork neck bone
  • 4 corns, cut into chunks
  • 3 to 4 slices of ginger
  • 8 to 10 cups of water
  • salt to taste

  1. This is one of my favorite home made soups. Its cheap and easy to make. I usually put a clove of garlic instead of ginger. I also add daikon and some spinach to make it a one-dish meal.
